How Dental Crowns are Made

Serving Hobbs, Odessa, Southeast New Mexico and West Texas


Porcelain Crowns Carlsbad

If you are interested in replacing a worn dental crown, or restoring a damaged tooth with a porcelain crown, our experienced Hobbs cosmetic dentist and his team can provide great skill and personalized crown work. Unlike porcelain veneers which cover only the front surfaces of teeth, dental crowns fully encase the exposed enamel surfaces. This dental restoration is a great way to protect a tooth that has suffered damage and ensure it remains functional and strong.

To get an idea of what occurs during a dental crown procedure, read the steps below.

  • First and foremost, Dr. Henderson will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums.
  • Once it is decided that a crown is the best way to go, Dr. Henderson will explain the process and answer your questions about porcelain crowns.
  • Digital bite impressions and measurements are taken.
  • Dr. Henderson will remove any bacteria from the tooth.
  • Your weakened tooth will be reduced and cleaned to make room for the new crown. A temporary crown will be set into place until your second appointment.
  • Dr. Henderson will take another digital impression of the reduced tooth.
  • The impression is immediately sent to our lab for your new crown to be created. Dr. Henderson will request a specific shade for your porcelain crown so it blends in with your natural enamel.
  • Once the new, metal-free crown is sent over to our office, you will come in for your crown placement.
  • During the last step in the crown placement process, Dr. Henderson removes the temporary crown and affixes the restoration with a strong bonding agent. Finally, he will adjust the tooth for a natural fit and flawless appearance.

In just two visits, you have a restored tooth that looks and feels incredibly natural. If you want to improve your smile with a dental crown or other type of cosmetic dentistry procedure, our affordable cosmetic dentistry can help you get the smile of your dreams.
